{Wine Bottle Label for Teacher // DIY}


A few months ago I was scrolling through Facebook and saw a wine bottle with a label that said, "Our child is probably the reason you drink, so enjoy this bottle on us" and I laughed so hard. I knew that it was perfect for Mason's teacher. I was going to wait and give it to her at the end of the year...but then decided to do it for Valentine's Day! Wine and Chocolates just scream Valentine's Day to me.

I searched Etsy for a printable {or one that could be mailed} label, but I didn't find anything that I absolutely loved. I wanted something that was more of my style, so I made my own using PicMonkey!

This is how I did it...

Computer / PicMonkey
Sticker paper {I used Avery #3383} / printer
A bottle of wine

I read that most wine labels are around 4x5 inches so I used that as my guide. I went into PicMonkey and chose "Design" and then custom size. I made the size 1200 x 1500 pixels.

The first thing I did was add a border to the label. PicMonkey has a few you can choose from.

Then I started adding the text portion of my label. I used the fonts Indy Pimp and In Screaming Color. Both are free downloads.

Next I clicked on the butterfly {Overlays} to add a heart by our name.

While still in the Overlays tab of PicMonkey click on "Your Own" to find the picture you want to add to the label.

Next, just save it to your computer and print. I printed it at a 4x6 size and trimmed it how I needed it. Once you have it cut out you take the backing off and stick it to the wine. I used my favorite wine Stella Rosa's Stella Rosso. It's a semi-sweet red and so delicious! Definitely my go to.

That's it! Easy peasy!

We gave it to Mason's teacher on the day of our Valentine party. I put it at the bottom of her gift bag and told her she could open everything but the bottom thing. She knew exactly. But, she wanted to see so she took it to a little nook in her room and looked at it in private. She loved it!

Have you ever made anything like this?
